Early life and career[edit] Howard Shore
Howard Shore
was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the son of Bernice (née Ash) and Mac Shore.[3][4] Shore is Jewish.[5] He started studying music at the age of 8 or 9. He learned a multitude of instruments and began playing in bands at the ages of 13 and 14. By 17, he decided he wanted to pursue music in his adult life too.[6] When Shore was 13, he met and became good friends with a young man called Lorne Michaels
Lorne Michaels
in summer camp, and this friendship would later be influential in his career.[7] He studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston
Boston
after graduating from Forest Hill Collegiate Institute.[8][9] From 1969 to 1972, Shore was a member of the jazz fusion band Lighthouse.[10] In 1970, he became the music director for Lorne Michaels and Hart Pomerantz's short-lived TV program The Hart & Lorne Terrific Hour. Shore wrote the music for Canadian magician Doug Henning's magic musical Spellbound in 1974 and, from 1975 to 1980, he was the musical director for Lorne Michaels' influential late-night NBC comedy show Saturday Night Live,[11] appearing in many musical sketches, including Howard Shore

and His All-Nurse Band, and dressed as a beekeeper for a John Belushi/ Dan Aykroyd

performance of the Slim Harpo classic "I'm a King Bee". Shore also suggested the name for The Blues Brothers to Dan Aykroyd
Dan Aykroyd
and John Belushi.[12] Film scoring[edit] 1978–2000[edit] Shore's first film score was to the low budget thriller I Miss You, Hugs and Kisses (1978), followed by David Cronenberg's first major film, The Brood
The Brood
(1979).[8] He would go on to score all of Cronenberg's subsequent films, with the exception of The Dead Zone (1983), which was scored by Michael Kamen. The first film he scored that was not directed by Cronenberg was Martin Scorsese's After Hours (1985). Following that, he scored The Fly (1986), again directed by Cronenberg. Two years later, he composed the score to Big (1988), directed by Penny Marshall
Penny Marshall
and starring Tom Hanks. He then scored two more of David Cronenberg's films: Dead Ringers (1988) and Naked Lunch (1991). During 1991, Shore composed the score for the highly acclaimed film The Silence of the Lambs, starring Jodie Foster
Jodie Foster
and Anthony Hopkins, and directed by Jonathan Demme. He received his first BAFTA nomination for the score. The film became the third (and most recent) to win the five major Academy Awards
Academy Awards
(Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Actress). Shore is the only living composer to have scored a "Top Five" Oscar-winning film. During 1993, he composed the scores for M. Butterfly (another collaboration with Cronenberg), Philadelphia (his second collaboration with Jonathan Demme), and Mrs. Doubtfire, directed by Chris Columbus. The latter two films were highly successful, Philadelphia winning Tom Hanks his first Oscar. Shore scored another three films in 1994: The Client, Ed Wood, and Nobody's Fool. Ed Wood is notable for being one of the three films directed by Tim Burton that did not feature a score by Danny Elfman. Shore continued to score numerous films from 1995 to 2001, including two David Fincher
David Fincher
films, Seven (1995) and The Game (1997), and The Truth About Cats and Dogs (1996), directed by Michael Lehmann; he also collaborated on two films with Cronenberg, along with Tom Hanks' directorial debut, That Thing You Do!. Shore also composed the score of the 2000 film The Cell. 2001–2006[edit]

Major success came in 2001 with his score to The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first film in the highly acclaimed The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The news that Shore would score the trilogy surprised some, since he was primarily associated with dark, ominous films and had never scored an epic of this scale. However, the score was hugely successful and won Shore his first Oscar, as well as a Grammy
Grammy
Award, and garnered Shore nominations for a Golden Globe
Golden Globe
and a BAFTA. A cue from this film (The Bridge of Khazad-Dûm) was used in a teaser for 2013's Superman
Superman
film, Man of Steel.[13] The following year, Shore composed the scores to Panic Room, Gangs of New York (replacing Elmer Bernstein), and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the second film in the trilogy. (The latter two films were both nominated for the Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Picture.) Initially, Shore's score for The Two Towers was going to be deemed ineligible for submission to the Academy, due to a new rule that disallowed the submission of scores which contained themes from previous work. However, the implementation of this rule change was subsequently postponed, meaning the score remained eligible.[14] Ultimately, The Two Towers score did not receive an Academy Award
Academy Award
nomination; Shore did, however, receive a BAFTA nomination for Gangs of New York. In 2003, he composed the score for the final film in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The film was the most successful film in the trilogy and the most successful of the year. Shore won his second Oscar for Best Original Score, as well as a third for Best Original Song for "Into the West", which he shared with Fran Walsh and Annie Lennox. Shore also won his first Golden Globe, his third and fourth Grammy
Grammy
(the fourth for Best Song), and was nominated for a third BAFTA. The scores of The Lord of the Rings, performed primarily by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, became one of the most successful film scores ever written[citation needed] and the biggest success in Shore's career. In 2004, Shore again collaborated with Martin Scorsese, scoring his epic film The Aviator, this time with the Brussels Philharmonic.[15] He won a second Golden Globe
Golden Globe
for the score, becoming the third composer to have won consecutive Golden Globes in the Original Score category. He also received his sixth Grammy
Grammy
nomination, and his fifth BAFTA nomination. He collaborated again with David Cronenberg
David Cronenberg
in 2005 to score A History of Violence, starring Viggo Mortensen.[16] The film was a success and received two Oscar nominations. In 2006, he collaborated for the fourth time with Martin Scorsese, this time to score The Departed.[17] The film was highly successful and won four Oscars, including a long-awaited win for Scorsese, and Best Picture. Although Shore was originally commissioned to compose the soundtrack for King Kong, he was later replaced by James Newton Howard
James Newton Howard
due to "differing creative aspirations for the score" on his and the filmmakers' parts.[18] This was a mutual agreement between himself and Peter Jackson. Despite this, Shore has a cameo near the end of the film as the conductor of the orchestra in the theater, performing portions of Max Steiner's score to the original 1933 version of the film. 2007–present[edit] In 2007, Shore composed the music for Soul of the Ultimate Nation, an online multiplayer video game. The soundtrack is notable for being the first video game soundtrack to feature Lydia Kavina
Lydia Kavina
on the theremin. During 2007 he also composed the scores for The Last Mimzy
The Last Mimzy
and Eastern Promises, the latter of which includes a section that has been performed in concert as Shore's Concertino for violin solo and chamber orchestra.[19] Eastern Promises
Eastern Promises
was another collaboration with David Cronenberg and earned Shore his fourth Golden Globe
Golden Globe
nomination. In 2008, he scored Doubt, starring Meryl Streep and directed by John Patrick Shanley. The film was a success, earning five Oscar nominations. In 2010, Shore composed the score to Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight film series, following Carter Burwell and Alexandre Desplat, who scored the first and second films, respectively. He also replaced John Corigliano to score Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson. Shore's 2011 projects were A Dangerous Method, continuing his long-term collaboration with director David Cronenberg. He also composed the score to Martin Scorsese's Hugo, his fifth collaboration with the director, which earned him a sixth Golden Globe
Golden Globe
nomination and fourth Oscar nomination.[9] He also composed the score to Peter Jackson's The Hobbit
The Hobbit
film series.[20] Conducting
